DynaEnergetics, a business of DMC Global Inc., has officially opened its technologically advanced manufacturing, assembly and administrative facilities on its industrial campus in Blum, Texas.
The facility spans 74 000 ft2 and significantly expands the production capacity of the DynaStage™ well perforating system. The oil and gas industry’s only Factory-Assembled, Performance-Assured™ solution provides wireline companies and operators with a highly effective plug-and-go system that streamlines perforating operations, while alleviating labor costs, assembly time, maintenance and risk of misfire.
New production resources include six DynaStage assembly lines and multiple CNC turning centres for in-house manufacturing of tandem sub adaptors (TSAs), a key component in the DynaStage system. In addition, DynaEnergetics is installing two new automated shaped-charge production lines that will more than triple the US production capacity of the business’ advanced perforating charges. DynaEnergetics also has added administrative and sales offices, employee and customer training facilities, an oversized gathering and dining space, commercial kitchen, employee locker rooms and a tornado shelter.
“Completion of these vertically integrated manufacturing facilities will enable DynaEnergetics to more efficiently address growing customer demand for our factory-assembled perforating systems,” said Ian Grieves, president of DynaEnergetics. “We have sold more than 500 000 DynaStage units since the system was introduced approximately two years ago to North America’s onshore unconventional oil and gas industry. The systems have led to a step-change improvement in the efficiency, reliability and safety of our customers’ well completion programmes.”
